The Southern provinces almanac, directory, diary and year-book
The Almanac was published annually from 1853 to 1892. Christchurch City Libraries has a set covering the years 1863 to 1892. Originally the Almanac covered a number of provinces, but from 1865 the Almanac concentrated on Canterbury.
The Almanac includes a review and commentary on the events of the preceding year. It contains listings of businesses, associations, central and provincial government officials and departments; and a trades and occupations directory. As well as Christchurch and Lyttelton other Canterbury towns are listed. Includes postal, port, customs and other regulations; army lists; details of religious bodies, charitable organisations and various societies.
